Ancient Monuments and Historic Buildings 

MAES HOW 

MAINLAND, ORKNE 



-it 7 



s 



THIS famous monument, the 
supreme example of its class 
in Great Britain, is situated about 
three-eighths of a mile from the 
south-eastern end of the Loch of 
Harray, which here communicates 
with the Loch of Stenness by a 
narrow channel spanned by the 
Bridge of Brodgar. It stands 
some 40 to 50 feet above the 
Lochs, overlooking the remark- 
able assemblage of prehistoric 
structures crowded together in 
this area. 

In outward appearance it is a 
great, green, cone-shaped mound 
some 24 feet high and 115 feet 
in diameter at the base, differing 
only in size and symmetry from 
some other chambered mounds in 
Orkney. There is, however, good 
reason to believe that, were its sur- 
face stripped of soil and turf, there 
would be revealed a dry-stone 
building constructed with care 
and great skill. It is surrounded, 
at a distance of from 50 to 70 
feet from its base, by a broad 
ditch, averaging 45 feet in width 
and 6 feet in greatest depth. It 
has been calculated that the upcast 
from this ditch would have been 
sufficient to furnish a covering of 
earth for the stone structure it 
encloses, but it is possible that 
the building was originally left 
exposed and that nature has pro- 
vided the covering. The crumb- 



GW-J 



ling of the stonework under the 
influence of the weather would 
soon fill the crevices with soil in 
which the seeds of grasses would 
by and by sow themselves, and 
a mantle of turf would thus 
eventually be formed. 

The entrance to the interior is 
on the south-western side of the 
mound and opens into a passage, 
now 36 feet 6 inches in length, 
restored at the outer end, but 
everywhere else original. At a 
distance inwards of 6 feet 6 inches 
there are door-checks on either 
side, and within these a downward 
step of 7! inches. At this point 
the passage has a height of 4 feet 
6 inches and a width of 3 feet. 
Inwards from the step the floor 
slopes imperceptibly upwards, 
the total rise being less than a 
foot in the whole length. For a 
distance of 8 feet from the door- 
checks, the lower parts of which 
are built with upright jambs, 
the sides of the passage are con- 
structed of irregularly coursed 
masonry, but thereafter the walls 
and the roof are formed of single 
slabs averaging 18 feet 6 inches 
long, 4 feet 4 inches wide, and 7 
inches thick, the effect being that 
of a great rectangular box. In all 
probability the floor was also a 
monolith, but owing to fractures 
it is impossible to be certain of 
this. The long slab on the
